    "On the morning of 8th June the planet Venus will pass between the Earth and the Sun, appearing as a black circle drifting across the face of the Sun.
    Only six of these transits have ever been observed - the first in 1639 and the most recent in 1882. No-one alive today has ever seen a transit of Venus."

    did you guys see venus' transit?

    what are your thoughts about it?
